Student Leaders #7

Student Leaders #7                             22/9/2017

Today Tracy and I created drawings for the chorus box idea.
She doodled a drawing about a tree and I did the Oaklands symbol.
It was a great out come yet she still didn't like it; so she's working on another one right now. 
I decided to make the design on the whiteboard, then transfer it to paper. I am preparing to show it at the next meeting.    :)

The care values i showed today were Community, Active Thinking, Respect, and Excellence!

Koru Games Reflection

Koru Games Reflection

In the Koru Games the sport I competed in was Volleyball.

Our team won 5 out of 8 games against the other schools from around the south island and overall we came 8th out of 24 teams competing overall.

I found the experience to be really fun because it's awesome competing and just playing volleyball with the other schools and it was amazing to win most games and come 8th which was awesome!

In terms of working with Individuals and Groups; my solo level is Extended Abstract because I always make sure to do my best whether in a group of by myself.

Student Leaders #5                                11/9/2017

Today I put out a few flags as part of my job and noticed the annoying incident of 'other' people (not house captians) putting out the flags instead of us is better and we still have jobs to do in the morning/afternoon. We've decided that after the Quiz Night for adults and parents, we will plan for what to do next on the chorus box and go on from there. 
The care vales I showed today were:
Respect: Communication and Empathy 
Excellence: Be self aware, Be resilient
Community: Collaborate
Active Thinking: Ask Questions

Letter Writing

Letter Writing

In Writing we have been learning to: Write a formal letter.

We have followed the writing process and have planned and drafted a formal letter.

This shows the process that we have followed.

Here is the letter that I have written My draft letter

Here is my reflection on the letter writing that we have done:

One thing that I found challenging about writing formal letters was making the letter seem very formal because I have never really written a formal letter to someone important before.

My next step is: look for more opportunities to put my letter writing knowledge into practice in the future.
